I actually held it together pretty good until about 2 weeks ago. Here I am at the end of the first trimester and I'm more worried than I was before. I think it's natural that we feel more impatient, worrisome and anxious than women who haven't had a stillbirth or at least some sort of loss.

In a way though, I think stillbirth makes you more anxious. Because you were far enough along i nyour pregnancy to have to give birth and you thought you were safe, beyond the point of miscarriage. But if they have already given you 3 ultrasounds hopefully they will keep giving you the extra care to help try to ease your mind.

I know with Roald we got a heartbeat at 9.5 weeks on U/S, but it took them until I was 16 weeks to get it on the doppler. But this pregnancy, we got thre heartbeat on the doppler at 12 weeks. I also think some nurses and doctors are better at finding it earlier.

Thanks to Mommy2Belle for my Roald blinkie!
